*Author of original report: An absolute lie
*Consumer Suggestion: Contracts
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Chris Wood/CCW Electric tried to raise price AFTER contract was signed!!!!
and signed, I installed a temporary electrical pole so the framing and other crews could work. When it was time for me to begin the electrical roughin portion, Justing began to ask me for things that were not included in the contract. THE LANGUAGE WAS CLEAR AS DAY. THEY WROTE IT. When I told him that these things would result in additional charges, Justin said that he would have to think about what all they want to add. Three days later when I finally had to call Ken back, he told me that they had once again "shopped" my bid out and let someone else have the job. I told them that would be fine, although I was not happy. I removed my temporary pole and disconnected the power. When OGE electric went out to recover the meter they called me and asked if I had reconsidered because there was another electrical pole on the property. After contacting the City office, it was apparent to the City of Midwest City and I that they had gotten the other "electrician" to install a new pole on my permit, and had already began the rough in on my permit. I was able to retract my permit and disassociate myself with the project. I sent a bill to Justin and We Buy Houses for the temporary power I had installed and for the use of the equipment until I pulled it. Justin wasn't going to pay a dime until I called him to follow up. After discussing the situation and explaining to him that if our peers in the industry would have never referred me if they were aware of this type of unprofessional business practices performed by Justin or his employees. Justing then agreed that the right thing to do would be to pay. However, two weeks later when the check showed up, it was for less than half of the invoice I sent him. Justin meerly stated to me that is what they normally pay thier (unlicensed) guy.
These guys are crooks. They do everything they can to keep from using qualified tradesmen. When they do call you, they expect you to do it for the same price as the unqualified and ignorant handymen they use.
I would not think twice about these guys, but I spent weeks trying to accomodate these guys and I already had equipment installed and had done a material take off and acquired the permit. (I spent money on these guys)
This is the fifth home investment company that I have had dealings with since going independent, and all but one (Dutch), practice the same thing. I have fixed problems all over this metro area for the unqualified handymen that these guys keep using. They wouldnt call me for that if I didn't give them a steal of a price. There is no room in the housing rehabilitation market for hard working, honest, well priced do whats right good guys.
